  Football Team | Washington to use committee at RB    Wed Sep 9, 01:51 PM

Washington Football Team RBs Peyton Barber, Antonio Gibson, Bryce Love and J.D. McKissic are all candidates to receive playing time in Week 1 since head coach Ron Rivera said the team will use a committee approach at the position.

Footballguys view: The Football Team has some interesting options in the backfield. Gibson is arguably the best all-around talent and he can work well as a runner and receiver out of the backfield. Love has explosive capability and can make field-flipping plays. Barber is a solid-yet-unspectacular veteran. McKissic is listed as the no.1 back on the depth chart and is a pass-catching back. This RBBC is one Fantasy GMs should avoid early and give it some time to see how it plays out.

  Redskins | Adrian Peterson could see reduced workload    Sat May 23, 10:18 AM

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson is likely to see a reduced workload in 2020, due to the offseason acquisitions of RBs Peyton Barber and J.D. McKissic, the selection of RB/WR Antonio Gibson in the draft and the returns of RBs Derrius Guice and Bryce Love from knee injuries. However, there is a possibility that the Redskins could have multiple running backs on the field at the same time, based on early Zoom meetings Peterson has had with the coaching staff.

Footballguys view: Peterson brings plenty of power to the Washington backfield, something most of the other backs listed do not have. This is a talented group of running backs if they're all healthy, and it will be interesting to see who emerges from the cluster. From a fantasy perspective, this Washington RBBC is going to be problematic to predict.

  Redskins | Peyton Barber heads to Washington    Tue Mar 24, 03:10 PM

Free-agent RB Peyton Barber (Buccaneers) signed a two-year deal worth $3 million with the Washington Redskins Tuesday, March 24. Barber receives $600,000 in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: Barber is a jack-of-all trades running back who will work behind Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice in Washington. He does not have much juice when he does touch the rock and is not much of a fantasy option.

  Buccaneers | Peyton Barber hopes to return    Sun Jan 5, 01:22 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent RB Peyton Barber said he would like to re-sign with the Buccaneers this offseason.

Footballguys view: The Buccaneers added Barber as an undrafted free agent out of Auburn back in 2016. Since that time, Barber has been the top back for the team here and there, rushing for 1,987 yards and 15 touchdowns. Ronald Jones is now the starter for the Buccaneers, and the team may not consider Barber much of a priority as they'll look to upgrade the position behind Jones.

  Buccaneers | Week 17 final stats for Buccaneers    Sun Dec 29, 04:58 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 13-of-24 passes for 201 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 17 against the Atlanta Falcons. RB Ronald Jones ran 11 times for 106 yards with two grabs for 10 yards, while WR Breshad Perriman led the way with five catches for 134 yards and a touchdown on eight targets. TE Cameron Brate had just one grab for two yards and a score on three targets. RB Peyton Barber ended up with six runs for 10 yards with two receptions for 25 yards on four targets.

Footballguys view: Winston threw a pick six in overtime on his last pass of the season. If it's his last pass as a Buc, then his career there will begin and end with pick sixes. The Bucs have a tough offseason decision on Winston, who will be a free agent. Ronald Jones had some promising moments this year and Perriman is about get paid in free agency.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay to involve RBs more in Week 16?    Tue Dec 17, 02:58 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RBs Ronald Jones, Peyton Barber and Dare Ogunbowale are expected to take on a bigger role in the passing game than usual in Week 16 versus the Houston Texans with the team being ravaged by hamstring injuries to its receiving corps.

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs aren't going to count on Bucs RBs in the championship round. Perhaps Jones would be a 'what the heck' flex but that's about it.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed for 44 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed 23 times for 82 yards and one touchdown Thursday, Sept. 12, against the Carolina Panthers in Week 2. He caught one pass for seven yards.

Footballguys view: Barber got the majority of work on the back of his determination and physical finishing. He was tackled in the end zone for a safety and looked basically the same as ever, but the game script was right up his alley.

  Buccaneers | Ronald Jones remains backup for now    Wed Sep 11, 09:56 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones led the team with 75 rushing yards in Week 1 against the San Francisco 49ers, but head coach Bruce Arians confirmed RB Peyton Barber remains first in line for touches heading into Week 2. 'If Peyton gets a little tired, he will get (Jones) in there,' Arians said Wednesday, Sept. 11. 'And if he has the hot hand, he stays in there until he gets tired.'

Footballguys view: Jones looked more explosive than Barber but he's going to have to prove himself further in order to climb the depth chart. In his current role, Barber has some deep flex appeal. We'll see if his role grows as the season goes on.

  Buccaneers | Peyton Barber remains starter for now    Tue Sep 10, 05:33 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber will get the start again in Week 2 over Ronald Jones, although head coach Bruce Arians suggested he will go with the 'hot hand' after Jones gets a chance to mix in.

Footballguys view: Barber was the lead back in Week 1 against the 49ers, even though Ronald Jones was the more exciting back. We'll see if Jones can continue to make plays as a reserve runner and earn a larger role, perhaps even replacing Barber as the starter. In the meantime, Jones is a flex play with upside against the Panthers on Thursday night.

  Buccaneers | Peyton Barber to receive start    Wed Aug 7, 06:43 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber will be the starting running back in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 9, but head coach Bruce Arians said he would also like to see RB Ronald Jones play with the first-team offensive line.

Footballguys view: Watch this battle as training camp unfolds. The team is looking at Barber and Jones to see who can come out as the starter. Barber has the experience and is a well-rounded back but Jones has electricity and excitement to his game. Jones had a down rookie season in 2018 and is looking to bounce back. We'll see how this shakes out as August rolls on.

  Buccaneers | Ronald Jones, Peyton Barber in tight competition    Tue Jul 30, 06:42 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RBs Ronald Jones and Peyton Barber will have a good battle for regular-season playing time this preseason, according to new head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: Both backs are going to get touches in 2019. Barber is the safer play at running back for the Buccaneers as he has a solid all-around skill set. However, Jones has incredible upside if he plays up to his potential. Jones has plenty of speed to burn and can get by defenders quickly. His rookie season in 2018 was a disappointment, so we're anxious to see if Jones can look better this year.

  Buccaneers | Peyton Barber the favorite to start?    Tue Jul 23, 09:22 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber is the team's most experienced running back, and the new offensive staff has been very complimentary of him after breaking down his film over the last couple of seasons. According to Mark Cook of PewterReport.com, it would be a shock if Barber doesn't come out of camp as the starting running back over Ronald Jones.

Footballguys view: Barber is the safer choice at running back for the Bucs...but he doesn't provide the upside of big-play ability like Jones does. Jones had an awful rookie season, but we're excited to see if he can start showing off that speed and agility like he did in college at USC. Barber should begin the season as the starter but Jones could (should?) push him for snaps/touches as the season goes on.

  Buccaneers | Peyton Barber could see 45 targets    Wed Jul 17, 09:52 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber will receive close to 45 targets in 2019, according to Taylor Jenkins of PewterReport.com.

Footballguys view: That would be quite the increase over the 29 targets he had as the Bucs lead back in 2018. Barber is going to compete with second-year back Ronald Jones for the top spot this season. Even if Jones is the lead back, Barber could be used as a receiving option out of the backfield.

  Buccaneers | Peyton Barber still the man?    Sun Jun 30, 09:35 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber is 'certainly likely' to lead the team in rushing, according to Greg Auman of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: The Bucs rushing game hasn't exactly been fertile fantasy soil lately, and all signs point to Ronald Jones getting more work this year even though Barber may stay atop the depth chart. If anyone is going to greatly overachieve ADP this year in this backfield, it's Jones, but the more likely correct answer is probably none of the above.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay remains high on Peyton Barber    Sun Jun 23, 05:21 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber is still held in high regard by the team, according to Greg Auman of The Athletic. Auman adds the 25-year-old was the first rusher in the last five years to rack up 250-plus touches but fail to compile 1,000 yards from scrimmage in 2018.

Footballguys view: Barber could end up being cheap bye/injury depth if he holds off Ronald Jones after a strong spring from Jones. He has a low ceiling, but Barber might gain value in the same role as 2018 if Bruce Arians improves the offense.

  Buccaneers | Peyton Barber has a lot to prove    Thu Mar 21, 01:38 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber said in a radio interview Wednesday, March 20 that he has a lot to prove. 'I want to break 1,000 yards and prove I'm an every down running back,' Barber said.

Footballguys view: Barber had a career-high 871 rushing yards in 2018 as the Bucs lead back. They re-signed him to a one-year, $2.1 million contract earlier this month. Barber will have competition for touches from second-year pro Ronald Jones. We'll see if Jones can be more productive than he was as a rookie and seriously impact the value of Barber in 2019.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay high on Peyton Barber    Wed Feb 27, 07:24 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber drew praise recently from new head coach Bruce Arians.'I love him. When you watch the tape, you don't see him as 230. You see him as a 205-pound running back with great feet. Not every back's going to be a home-run hitter, but he gets those 10-, 15-yard runs, breaking tackles, a power runner, punishing runner, that's the kind I like to start. When we're building something, that's the kind I want to build around,' Arians told The Athletic.

Footballguys view: Barber is a favorite of the staff because he's a hard worker and a team player. The team has Ronald Jones, a second-round pick last year, but he didn't impress as a rookie. Jones may get a chance for a larger role, but Barber is the steady presence.

  Buccaneers | Peyton Barber likely to receive offer    Mon Feb 25, 07:42 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers restricted free-agent RB Peyton Barber likely will receive a tender offer this offseason.

Footballguys view: The Giants have given up a running back touchdown in every game this year and Barber is running as strong as he has all year. He'll get some flex consideration against the 49ers next week and Josh Adams might be the Eagles back to continue the scoring streak against the Giants.
